    Attorney for man accused in shooting spree calls $50K bail 'ludicrous'

    http://www.wisn.com/news/south-east-...?absolute=true

    Bridges is accused of opening fire on a group of about 10 people with an assault rifle, spraying the crowd with bullets and hitting two people.
    1) Sorry, but he was using a semi auto rifle, not an assault rifle.
    2) Sorry, but you Bridges are a felon with a firearm.
    3) Sorry, but you Bridges fired into a crowd of people.

    I hope you get the book thrown at you...finally.
    No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. Thomas Jefferson (1776)

    If you go into a store, with a gun, and rob it, you have forfeited your right to not get shot - Joe Deters, Hamilton County (Cincinnati) Prosecutor

    Long guns are off-topic...

    But I don't see how this really could have happened. I think it's all a hoax. The guy has been a felon since 1990, when he was 19. Since then, he's been convicted of 2 more felonies and 2 misdemeanor drug charges, so he's 5x a prohibited person. There's no way he could have possessed a firearm.

    And while there are some old records missing, from the beginning of his adult criminal career, all that's showing on CCAP as far as punishment is some fines and a total of about 2 months in jail.
    30 charges, 14 convictions, and that's all that's showing up as punishment.

    I happen to agree with the attorney of this lifetime career 5X loser criminal.... $50,000 bail is LUDICROUS! The bail amount should have at least 1 more 0 following the 1 and prior to any decimal point!
    RIGHTS don't exist without RESPONSIBILITY!
    If one is not willing to stand for his rights, he doesn't have any Rights.
    I will strive to stand for the rights of ANY person, even those folks with whom I disagree!
    As said by SVG--- "I am not anti-COP, I am PRO-Citizen" and I'll add, PRO-Constitution.
    If the above makes me a RADICAL or EXTREME--- So be it!

    But it is a state specific issue related to RKBA - it at least marginally meets the test

    Flinty on the outside, some would even say crusty - works for me. I just keep on rollin'......

    Personally, I very much want my attorney doing his job to the nth degree, the first and every time.
    AND it is my desire/goal to make his job as easy as I can by NOT intentionally performing illegal acts.
